Cage Warriors 113 Betting Tips, Odds, and Preview
The show must, and will, go on for the London-based mixed martial arts promotion, as Cage Warriors 113 pushes through at the Manchester BEC Arena behind closed doors, with only the fighters, their respective teams, and the event staff in attendance. In an unprecedented move by CW President Graham Boylan, he and his team moved the venue at the last minute from the London Indigo at the O2 to the aforementioned Manchester stage for the fighters’ and the fans’ enjoyment amidst the global pandemic.
CW 113 has retained most of its originally scheduled fights, which includes three world title bouts, and looks to increase its number as Boylan and the UFC managed to strike a deal to salvage some of the matches lost from the UFC London card. Some of the added matchups are former Cage Warriors standout John Phillips going up against Dusko Todorovic, and Darren Stewart versus Bartosz Fabinski.
As for the actual Cage Warriors 113 card, the main event will highlight the clash between Morgan Charriere and Darko Banovic for the interim featherweight title. The co-main events will also have belts on the line as flyweight champion Samir Faiddine will defend his strap opposite Luke Shanks, as well as a lightweight championship battle between Mason Jones and Joe McColgan.
